McGeorge's Externships let you earn law school credit while performing supervised legal work as an extern at nearly 100 approved government agencies, courts or non-profit entities, and limited for-profit entities where you'll have the opportunity to:
- Apply legal theory and academic principles to solve legal problems and controversies
- Develop legal research, writing, negotiation and interviewing skills
- Experience how ethical standards inform the practice of law
- Better understand the lawyer's role in our legal system
- Explore career interests in a variety of legal settings and build a professional network

Students in the McGeorge Externships Program pursue unique opportunities to gain practical experience under attorney supervision in externships. Externships may include government agencies, nonprofit entities, and limited private externships. Private externships are limited to those areas in which students are unable to gain practical experience without receiving academic credit. Private externships have included IP, Entertainment, General Counsel, Water, and Lobbying-related externships. All externship proposals require advance approval of the Externships Director and the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.
